Our Name...it's inspiration

Young Eric Blanchet with his pet talking crow, Tony.
As a boy, Eric had a pet crow named Tony.  Eric and his brothers taught him to say a few words and phrases like “Hello”, “Don’t fall”, “Play ball”. Tony often flew to the elementary school that Eric attended. While he was in class, the special needs children had their recess. One autistic boy in particular would repeat words to Tony and Tony would repeat them back to him. Through this exchange Tony learned how to count to ten and say his ABC’s, and the boy began to talk more with others. The news of Tony spread through the area and he was known as Tony, the Talking Crow.
